Revision as of 00:49, 2 February 2012

Just a note that this does not give an idea of what Pokemon actually is in the opening sentence. The series of what? What franchise? It should be written as if the reader knows nothing about the topic. I know, I know, {{sofixit}} Nevermind, I've done it. Jellochuu¾ 22:39, 28 Feb 2005 (UTC)

  • A* manga? And it links to Special? Um...there's at *least* five Pokémon mangas out there...The only reason I'm not changing it myself is because I don't know if we have a general "pokémon manga" listing.

I always wondered, are humans the only animals apart from Pokémon in the Pokémon world? Punkrockrevel 09:48, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

thats what i believe...File:Ani491MS.gifKPF

I'd think so... In one of the earlier episodes, there were fish swimming around in Cerulean Gym, though...

Also in the first episode a pidgey is seen eating a worm--Pokemon22495 03:45, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

The only reason the very first season had real animals is because the amount of Pokémon was very limited. You can't see any non-Pokémon, non-human animal in any of the most recent seasons, can you? TheBlazikenMaster 12:24, 5 July 2008 (UTC)
Not unless you count coral(I don't).--Starlight the ampharos 14:13, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
We have Corsola. --Anangryzapdos 11:05, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Very sad.....

Hello everyone , I just wanted to let you know that I find this page in very sad shape. This is a Pokemon wiki , you whould think that the page named "Pokemon" whould be bigger.

I just think that we should make this page more bigger.

--Pokemon157 01:45, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

It really doesn't need to be. Just look around the wiki, really. You'll just learn more. We don't need this page as big as the wiki.
I really don't think this is too shabby, really. :/ Tina δ 01:55, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

Design Themes

Unverified research and subjective opinion...? Also, embarrassingly, I don't know the tags for citation needed on Bulbapedia. I should really get on that...evkl 21:15, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

Ditto that. Maybe this section should look at "repeated" designs, i.e. Butterfree and Beautifly. Er, wait... we have citation needed tags? Bulbabot told me we didn't need or want them because all of our information is 100% accurate... o_O — THE TROM — 21:45, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

Okay...

Is this page really needed? This is a Pokémon wiki, and if anyone comes here, don't you think that they'll know what Pokémon is? 0° 01:00, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

I think it's necessary, yes. Just because we shouldn't link to this page every time the word appears (considering how often it does) doesn't mean we shouldn't have a page on the thing the wiki centers around. --((Marton imos)) 01:02, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

(DAMN conflicts)-This is more of a background and concept of it (in my opinion).--☆Coolピカチュウ! 01:03, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

Impact section

sould we add a section about the impact Pokémon has had on the world to this artical?ŚĥîΠŶPî₭₳ĉĥŭ 15:30, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

Localization

Is this page trustworthy, and if so would the information be notable on any page? Pokemon Could Have Been Muscular Monsters Redstar 00:56, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

About the pronunciation

I was looking at my old VHSs and on the back of one it gave a definition thing and gave a pronunciation as Poh-Kay-Mahn. Would that be right or wrong? As it can be a trivia on another page if not.--Midnight Blue 05:16, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

Well I know it's not pronounced Poh-Ka-Mon. The é makes it Poh-Kay-Mon. Also, it's accepted as Pok-Kay-Mon pretty much anywhere now. In the animation, card game, etc. - Vhayes1992 16:57, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

Think this is a good place to ask.

I have been noticing this on some pages. For Pocket Monsters in Japanese for Pocket, is it Poketto or Pocketto? B/c some pages have two different spellings.--Midnight Blue 03:45, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

Flat romanization is "poketto monsutaa", so it's "poketto". Is that what you were asking? ▫▪Ťïňắ 03:51, 24 January 2010 (UTC)
Yes, thank you, I'll go double check to see if I did see if it was on any pages.
Just search there's none, must of been thinking of Wikipedia.--Midnight Blue 03:56, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

The back of the first 3 movies in Etymology.

Is there anything we can put to make it more specific?--Midnight Blue 05:33, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

Doesn't seem anything wrong with it to me. —darklordtrom 08:47, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

511?

I may sound like an idiot, but 511 Pokémon - this is counting different forms (formes), right? I just wanted to make sure, as I coulnd't find the info elsewhere. Bulbajer 00:03, 17 April 2010 (UTC)

Kidding :P That number is automatically inputted via categorisation, but the categories are a bit screwy at the moment coz TTE's doing some testing. I've adjusted the count to manual input now. —darklordtrom 08:01, 17 April 2010 (UTC)

Move

Pokémon should be a disambiguation page and this should be moved to Pokémon (franchise). Wildgoose-The friendly goose in town! 00:15, 1 February 2012 (UTC)
